I’ve come across it more and more as I surf through the Internet and, sadly, at my own front door too: people who have their mind set on one thing and cannot see anything else even if it is connected. Having someone try and tell me how I should run my life because a man […]

Web 2.0 Fails.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 30, 2012 in News & Opinion |

It’s a wonderful idea: a complete world of web sites linking one to another in a seamless network, working together to make the Internet an experience for all, to bring people together and create a global village without boundaries, without borders. But it is just that, simply an idea. Although web 2.0 has been ‘in […]

Silly Facts and Figures

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 29, 2012 in Immoral Conversations |

I’m not really sure that I want to know but: who does all the research on facts and figures which appear in newspapers and magazines? Does someone really contact a central statistical office or a business and ask for information, or does it get sent to them as a matter of course? I was wondering […]

Finding A Good Argument

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 28, 2012 in Immoral Conversations |

We’re going to hear much much more about it before things calm down and a few of those more narrow-minded people out there move on to other things. It’s in the news again, and will continue to be: people and small communities turning against coloreds, against LGBT, against whatever is different. It’s impossible to get […]

Fighting On!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 27, 2012 in Internet |

Strange, but no matter where you happen to go on the Internet, you’re going to get hit by spam, by pop-up and pop-under advertising, but attempts to infect your computer through a virus. Two examples I’ve come across recently. The first is on Instagram which, fortunately, is not such a big thing. The likelihood of […]

Hidden Corners.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 26, 2012 in Personal |

Yesterday I had a little bit of time on my hands, so I went for a walk around one of the smallest areas within Bremen: Schnoor. This is a sort of artists’ quarter although, I have discovered, less so than it once was. Apparently in the Sixties – mythical times! – there were far more […]

Hiding Criticism.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 25, 2012 in Internet, News & Opinion |

Sometimes I get fed up, when I visit a news site and want to see what’s going on, with the mess of comments unrelated to the subject matter, which follow. I don’t have a problem with people making comments, even welcome it, but some form of moderation? When ten or twenty comments out of several […]

Small Villages.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 24, 2012 in Personal |

This is what makes the area so interesting: small villages between low hills, fields, railway lines and roads. I could spend hours wandering around them just exploring if, that is, they were big enough for one person to spend hours in! Uenzen in Lower Saxony (Mittelweser Region) Photo: Viktoria Michaelis. Many of these villages are […]

The Week Ahead.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 23, 2012 in Personal |

Plenty of things planned for this week, since I am now officially on vacation and can enjoy not just the promised weather but also a chance to travel around some of the villages and towns in this beautiful area. But I’m not going too far away from home, since I’m the only one in our […]

A Protest Action

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 22, 2012 in Personal |

I’ve just changed my computer background image. It is a small protest and will probably have no effect on the rest of the world or the business interests of one particular company whatsoever, but it makes me feel – if temporarily – good inside. You see, I’ve always thought of them as being a children’s […]
